Overall it goes further off the deep end than ''The Dark Knight Returns'', almost to the point of being a Deconstruction of the DarkerAndEdgier nature of the first story though, naturally, not everyone thinks that makes it any good. The color palette is much more varied than ''The Dark Knight Returns''' muted colorization, taking it to an almost garish degree, that takes a little getting used to (many reviewers termed it ugly).

Added DiffLines:

** The beating itself at least is justified by the fact that the Batboy himself reverted to his more psychopathic attitude and threatened to break her bones first. Now the whole killing but not killing on the other hand...

* {{Retcon}}: Of sorts. ''ComicBook/TheDarkKnightReturns'' treats the absence of superheroes (and Superman having "sold out") as a consequence of a SuperRegistrationAct, with the unnamed president strongly implied to be UsefulNotes/RonaldReagan, who's super-aged and losing his sanity. Here, it's revealed that the whole scenario is due to Lex Luthor and Braniac holding the world (and Kandor) hostage via orbiting cannons and a hologram of the president (whose name is stated to be "Rickard", a reference to the comic ''Prez'').

* InvincibleHero: Batman. By the time anyone comes up with anything he's already twelve steps ahead of them. Superman heading for the Bat-Cave? No problem! Just use the the gigantic Kryptonite gloves over there! Got captured? No biggie! It was part of Batman's plan all along. It gets so bad that Batman can literally storm into Luthor's base of operations, beat him up, cut his face, and just leave with absolutely zero consequences. In the page image, he spells out why -- he wanted to inspire terror in Luthor, to let him know that his empire was crumbling. [[spoiler: And he wanted to give Hawkboy the honor of killing Luthor.]]

* DepravedHomosexual: it's implied that [[spoiler:Dick Grayson]] had the hots for [[spoiler:Batman]], but was rejected by him, which led to [[spoiler:Dick]] becoming a villain. At the end of the comic [[spoiler:Batman]] taunts him with all sorts of quasi-homophobic euphemisms relating to his supposed "sissiness". And since [[spoiler:Dick]] is the villain, apparently Miller thinks we're supposed to side with [[spoiler:Batman]] here.
